Sulindac overdose

Clinoril overdose

Sulindac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It is used to relieve pain and swelling associated with certain types of arthritis. Sulindac overdose occurs when someone takes too much of this medicine. People with kidney or liver disease are more likely to develop serious side effects or worsening of their disease from NSAIDs.

As a group, and because of their common use, NSAIDs are responsible for more serious drug-related side effects than any other class of pain-relieving drugs.
